If you haven’t gotten your hands (ha) on Arms yet, now’s your chance to give it a shot.

Arms, Nintendo’s funny new motion-controlled fighting game, has gotten plenty of post-launch love. A new update right around the corner will add a new character, Lola Pop, who can inflate during fights. She’ll bring a new stage with her.

So while it may not have emerged as a serious esports prospect, it’s fair to say that Arms…has legs.


With this in mind, if you haven’t checked it out yet, Nintendo is currently running another Global Testpunch demo session to give players a shot at the largely online-focused game. Unlike previous timed sessions, this one seems to be unlocked, so you can punch your way through the ranks for three days straight.

The Global Testpunch is already underway, and runs until 1pm PT on the 27th.
